Changing your vote

If we have already accepted your voted absentee ballot (this can be verified at mnvotes.org), you can ask us to replace it until 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 28 for the state primary and until 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 20 for the general election.

During the seven days preceding the election the Maplewood residents will also have an option to cast their ballot early at one of the locations designated by the Ramsey County Elections office, including the City Hall location. 

This process is different than the traditional absentee voting as voters will have an option to directly feed their ballot through the ballot machine.
